The purpose of this thread is to serve as an area for the creation of cards for units that have passed through Brainstorming, Design, and Playtesting. Critique of cards and discussion of cards is encouraged here.

When a unit enters Art, a member or non-member may volunteer to create a card for that unit. Any member or non-member that volunteers to create a card must demonstrate competence and skill in card-making prior to creating any cards for the purposes of this project. Therefor, it is asked that prior work, such as other custom cards, be submitted before a person is allowed to create a card for the purposes of this project.

Any units currently in Art shall be indexed in this post.

Once the designer of a unit feels that their unit is ready to move from Art to the Final Vote, that designer may propose that the unit move to the Final Vote. Should the vote pass, the designer must post a copy of the WorkBook of their unit in the General Discussion Thread, and propose the Final Vote.


Units Currently In Art
None, as of 09/24/12

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Interesting. A couple things I would bring up for discussion (on the template rather than the card itself):

- I assume this is a take on the HoME side of a card, rather than the classic 'Scape interpretation?

- I would prefer to use a symbol less specific to the trilogy than Lord of the Rings at the top. That's most often where the general symbol goes on cards, and so that's where it ought to go for us, in my opinion. We can devise new symbols for the HoME side, but we'll cross the bridge when we come to it.

- I think we should keep roughly the same format in the right-box stats as official cards, at least coloring the background of the text and making it white. I think the points also need to be a bit more prominent.

- The text could be larger in the middle box (special powers), though for figures with more text we'll undoubtedly need smaller text.

- Did we decide whether to use screenshots, illustrations, or figure pics? Maybe different versions, like C3G or HoSS do?

- Have we considered the possibility of adding our own sort of insignia to the HoME side and possibly the classic side of the card? If so, I might suggest this:

Re: HoME Art Thread

A member! What would that allow me to do? The more help I can do for you guys the better! Truth be told, your Gandalf is THE best custom unit I've ever played. When I played him, I literally heard the dwarves theme (from the Hobbit) playing in the back of my head. I just want every unit to be as good as he is! I also have to help my organization HoNTS (see link) and HoSS but I'll do EVERYTHING I can to help you guys!!!

Re: HoME Art Thread

To Son of Arathorn:

Yes, it's the HoME side

What kind of symbol would you like? I think it looks good up there and in my opinion, all of Tolkien' other Tails were, though wonderful in there own way, building up to LoTR, so that was the symbol that seemed most appropriate to put up there.

What whould you like me to do with the box on the right? I don't understand what you are saying...

Yeah, I just figured we should try to keep the size of the text more or less the same.

No, we did not that I am aware of. I chose what I chose because

A) It looks AWESOME

B) I couldn't find a very good High Res shot of the fig we are using.

Also, about the symbol, That's J.R.R.T.'s symbol, but what If we did a play on it with the initials of OUR name: HoME?

1) That's the way it looks.

2) Yep, that makes sense.

3) Yes.

4) Hmmm...I suppose.

5) Defiantly needs thought.

The problem with focusing solely on the Lord of the Rings is that we're not doing only Lord of the Rings characters. We're eventually spreading from that to the Hobbit, hopefully to the Silmarillion... by calling ourselves Heroes of Middle-Earth rather than Heroes of LotR, we made sure we weren't limited to the trilogy, so we could work with everything Tolkien had to offer.

I'd prefer we stay away from a symbol of the project name (maybe in the margin like mac122 does with his cards, if anything). I'd rather we devise our own symbols for HoME generals, and if we have a project symbol, the Tolkien insignia. Some suggestions for general symbols, as referring to White Knight's post on sorting potential units:

Jandar/Manwe???- Eagle's wing/White Tree of Gondor

Ullar/Orome???- Hunter's bow/Wizard's staff

Einar/Tulkas???- Horse banner/???

Aquilla/Aule- Shards of Narsil/Blacksmith's hammer/Ring of Barahir

Vydar/Feanor???- The White Hand/The Silmarils/

Utgar/Sauron- Eye of Sauron/Barad'dur

Valkrill/Morgoth- Grond, hammer of the underworld/???

Re: HoME Art Thread

A couple thoughts:

-Let's not "borrow" any symbols from other games or organizations. I think the Tolkien symbol SoA suggested might be okay, but our best bet might be something like HoME

-let's use a template that is identical to any of the classic template when it comes to text formatting, positioning, coloring, etc, but make the background and borders look different. I'd like us to focus on consistency and readability, as well as aesthetics.

-but nice start guys.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.
